The latest Storm Tracker Forecast from meteorologist Kevin Appleby:
The final day of September saw temperatures close to average as we watched lingering light rainfall shut off Saturday afternoon. The warmest spots were farther NW in the Adirondacks, which has been a theme lately with back-to-back coastal storms.
Skies have cleared, and the winds are light. Temperatures will fall into the 40s and 50s overnight, but a concern for Sunday morning is for developing valley fog. This fog will burn off after the sun rises Sunday.
Heading into October, it’s looking anything but fall-like to begin the month. It all begins Sunday, where high temperatures are expected to be about 10 degrees above average.
Grab those sunglasses and leave the jackets behind! With lots of sunshine, temperatures will surge into the mid to upper 70s.
Temperatures will continue to climb to begin the work week. We have a chance to reach 80 degrees Monday, with better opportunities for low and even mid 80s Tuesday and Wednesday.
It can’t stay this warm forever! Keep in mind, with average high temperatures by next weekend in the mid 60s, any switch to a below-average weather pattern will catch folks off-guard. An upper-level trough currently in the Western U.S. may provide this shock early next week.
The warmth lingers into Friday, but a potent cold front will increase winds and bring clouds and showers by the upcoming weekend.
Behind this system, temperatures will struggle big-time to even reach the mid 50s for high temperatures. A big temperature swing expected this week!
